Row totals are duplicating, Grand Total is Correct

I have an issue where the row totals are overstated but the grand total is correct. The source is a tabular model and when I connect Excel to the model in a pivot table, everything is correct but for some reason Power BI is duplicating the row totals. The underlying measure is a SUMX. Any ideas on what might be going on?

@JamesBI , without looking at data difficult to say.


but if you are using a formula like


sumx(Table, sum(Table[value]))


use like

sumx(Table, calculate(sum(Table[value])))

Hello all. Sorry for the late response. I deleted all my relationships and started over. It appears that one of my relationships was causing the issues. Thanks so much for your help!
